- Chas reports about Thai guest workers employed in Latvia
Chas reports about Thai guest workers employed in Latvia. According to the representative of a recruiting company which deals with job placement of Thais in Latvia, the demand for Thai workers in Latvia is high. The representative of the company argues that import of Thais is profitable because they are silent, hard-working, reliable, and they are not looking for permanent residence in Latvia. The majority of Thais are employed in meat- and fish-processing, timber industry and clothing manufacture.
